Giveaway ǀ Not One but Two Giveaways!
Once upon a time I never read novellas. Nowadays I read them with more regularity and find them actually quite refreshing. They're like a peek into a Story that is good enough to be a full-fledged novel, but instead, the wise author teases us with the set up and leaves us wandering around the possibilities of what might happen.
The two most recent novellas I had the pleasure of reading were contemporary romance novelist, Becky Wade's Love in the Details. This novella is part of Zondervan's Year of Weddings collection and in true Becky Wade style, as only she can write, the story is beautiful! Next I had the honor of reading my friend Amber's upcoming novella, While You're Awake. Most of you know fairytales are like Kryptonite for this reader. I'm kind of obsessed with the concept and many re-tellings (this one is loosely inspired by Sleeping Beauty). Toss in a modern twist (my favorite genre is contemporary!) and I'm for sure going to be reading this one. The original plan was to have Amber's reviewed today, alas, that did not happen. Instead you can see the pretty cover reveal post (which went live on Tuesday) and will have to endure another blog post from me gushing over While You're Awake.
In the meantime, I wanted to give all of you a chance to read these little novellas, plus it's been a while since we celebrated giveaway style. Below are all of the relevant details for both novella (purchase links, Goodreads page, etc.).
Next, before we get to the awesome details of the book, let's talk about those boring rules.
The giveaway(s) is open to all readers. But if you are outside the U.S., by entering you're agreeing to accept a gifted Kindle version of the book; U.S. readers will have the option of choosing Kindle or paperback (when applicable). I do ask that anyone who leaves a comment under "anonymous," please leave the same name you enter into the widget in your comment - it's not easy to try and match comments when there is no name and in fairness to everyone else, I want to be able to be sure everyone who used the Rafflecopter correctly has a fair chance at winning against those who abuse it - there have been a few people I could not verify. So please, I don't mean to overwhelm, but just keep this in mind when entering future giveaways. I'd sure appreciate it! Winner(s) will have 48 hours to respond to the email notification before another winner is randomly chosen.
To be entered in the giveaway, just enter as much or as little as you like into the Rafflecopter widget, which you'll find down below. (Note: this giveaway is running for an extended period of time since the both novellas release late in October.)
Love in the Details Synopsis: When Josh returns to his hometown of Martinsburg, Texas, to help his best friend get married, he didn’t intend to run into church wedding coordinator—and ex-girlfriend—Holly. He can’t help but pine after the girl he never got over.
Holly broke up with Josh years ago in an attempt to ensure his future success. But she loved him then and still loves him now. As she helps him plan his best friend’s wedding, she can’t help but feel horrible for the pain she caused him. And even though she longs to be with Josh, she doesn’t feel worthy of his big-time lifestyle when she is more comfortable in her small town world. Will Josh and Holly be able to keep things as they are when their true feelings threaten to surface at every turn? - Goodreads
